thing we are offering is something quintessentially san francisco. something that they cannot find anywhere else. we have two fetish fares in san francisco. there are only three other cities in the world that do that. new york, toronto, and berlin. i have been to all three and they are not nearly the same size as well we produced, or nearly as diverse. what we are always thinking about is what we are offering people that is so quintessentially san francisco that we get -- it cannot be gotten anywhere else. we are also told the switching of the entertainment this year. we have dance areas where the slides used to be. i think that for us it is about making sure that people, even if they came to san francisco in particular five years ago, that they are not experiencing the fight -- the same thing. it speaks to one of the priorities. the never-ending city. or something. i do not remember, exactly, but it is the same basic concept. even if you come here several times over and over, you will not have the same experience. as we do that, enhancing certain things. live stages have big-name
their rights. >> off thank you george are developing a story of san francisco police are currently on the scene of an accident at the a session of eddie street and van ness. is the video that let me show you some video from earlier as officers on seen in full force try to piece together what happened. at this point the started over a traffic accident they spotted a rear license plate light was out when they tried to pull that white four-door vehicle over. a gunshot was fired from the vehicle which had to passengers inside unclear at this point if it was fired at the office or in the air. that vehicle sped down and ran a red light and in the up colliding with a taxicab causing it to spin down the road. the two specs'suspect fled on foot. the driver is on the loose the passenger was arrested. luckily everyone was ok the taxicab driver did suffer a minor interesjury. shows you what offices open every day any accidents in turn violent. >> even as time goes on throughout the day used of the of what happened it takes a lot to register what goes to your right. >> authorities again sea
but unfortunately there's only one of me and the entire san francisco say also can't find another one, even in sfpd or the d.a.'s office. >> can i just say that one thing that really angers me about these scams is many seniors are really isolated and don't have a younger person to talk with them about being careful, so they are so isolated that they don't talk to others. i'm hoping sf safe or the senior organizations and many community-based groups can do more to reduce that isolation for many older folks. but i think that is a broader issue than what law enforcement can deal with but i see that targeting vulnerable that are most isolated is what many criminals do. >> another thing is, a serious lack of knowledge in the u.s. criminal justice system. they don't know how to follow this system. sometimes the victim believe if i make a report to the police all my lost property will be recovered and then i get paid back. that is not true. a long, legal process. sometime they get frustrated. they don't go to police. there is also a cultural thing as they feel ashamed. some don't even want to tell their f
resident of san francisco and i want to start by recognizing the hard work that has been put into the legislation. to those affects and to those who are supporting the people affected by this issue, really, it's serving as kind of a buffer to what could have been a real crisis. as a housing rights advocate for the mission collaborative for the past five years and a friend of many people who have had bed bugs i have wintered firsthand the devastating affects on lives. and so i can really appreciate this a[pro-rb/] and thank you to the working group that put this together. it puts in place procedures and policies that make it easier for housing advocates and tenant communitis to navigate this process, but we know we can put what we like on paper and promise to follow it to the best our abilitis and commit to the law whenever necessary, but unless fund exists to support this work, what we say what we commit to is different than what we can do. many of those severely affected by this issue represent some of the more marginalized and disenfranchised groups in our community. s
